My Day In Oxford

Hello my lovely readers,

First of all, I am incredibly – and I mean it – sad (no worse – I am devastated) at the fact that the lovely pretty little blogger deleted her blog!!!! 😱😭 Noooo, if you’re reading this  I will miss it so much 😢

*5 minutes of crying*

Anyway – getting on with the post, I am actually unsure about what I’m going to be writing about – yet. 😊

I guess I’ll tell you about my day in Oxford! So be prepared as this is going to be a ‘diary-like-sort-of-post’!

Sunday, 31st January 2016 (I know this is from quite a while ago but I had this post saved in my drafts for ages so I thought I’d post it today!)

8:00 am – I woke up to the never-ending squeals and what seems like endless noises that my brother manages to ‘produce’ all the time – or mainly at the most inconvenient  of times. 😴 For example,when I am deep asleep! In other words, my brother always and I mean ALWAYS wakes me up with his irksome (ooh I used a posh word) noisy behaviour! I don’t understand how he manages to drag himself out of bed on a Sunday morning?!

*an hour later* okay maybe *several hours later*

I finally, managed to open my eyes (I know great start) 😂

Anyway, as my body seemed to start moving (note – my brain was indeed still sleeping), I sleep-walked into the bathroom and did the ‘morning things’ a.k.a brushing my teeth, having a shower, brushing my hair – basically making yourself look ‘decent’ shall we say! 💩

Then, when I felt just a little bit more awake, I walked to the kitchen and had the dilemma of choosing whether to make pancakes or French toast or both! Let me know if you’re more of a pancake or a French toast person in the comments down below 🙂 After asking several of my friends, I decided to make French toast for breakfast! But nothing goes quite as ‘smoothly’ when you are me and guess what??? I realized that I had no bread in my house to make French toast! 😂🎉🍞 I ALWAYS forget to check if I have the ingredients  first & I spent ages deciding on what to have as well…

So in the end I made chocolate pancakes, with a chocolate spread inside and a couple of blueberries on top! Mmmmm…deeelicous! I do love a good pancake 🙂

I laid out my plates on the dinner table and scrolled through my Instagram as I ate my breakfast (taking my time!)

When I finished eating, I realized that I had a Christmassy Peppermint Flavoured Hot Chocolate! Yummy! 🎅🎅🎅 Santa would have definitely approved of my hot chocolate! So using my ‘Santa’ excuse I had an extremely unhealthy but deeeelicous breakfast!

Anyway, then my mum announced that we were going to Oxford that day!!! Normally, when I find out that I have to go on a walk I wail endlessly and become very and I mean VERY grumpy 🙂 However, Oxford is one of the few places that I’ve come to love (hence why I’m writing about my day in Oxford!) So I got super excited and got ready straight away.

Next, we got into the car – because you have to if you want to go anywhere (unless you’re getting the train or the bus.) That was the stupidest explanation ever…Anyhow, from where I live it takes an hour to get to Oxford so that was the only part of the journey I was dreading. I get really bad car/motion sickness  and it can be really awful sometimes. It’s hard enough to get into a car because the smell of gasoline (is it even called gasoline?!) anyway, I basically find the smell of cars really overpowering. The car wasn’t even moving and I already felt sick. 😦

So when we were half way through the journey I felt extremely ill (because of my car sickness *duh*) and then I realized that I left my medicine-tablets-thingie at home…Ooops…I know medicine isn’t the only solution to car sickness. I try to avoid medicine as much as possible unless I really need it, but I felt so dizzy and sick that I really needed it. I’ve actually heard that almonds can also help (unless you’re allergic – which I’m not) so I will try that next time and let you know how it goes. But yeah…in the end we had to stop on the motorway and I had to get some fresh air and drank some water and it helped a bit.

Finally, after what seems like ages, we got to Oxford! I absolutely love this city and I just know every little inch of this beautiful place. So, to be honest I cannot really recall everything I did in Oxford (otherwise this post could become the length of a novel) so instead I’ll tell you about the things that I enjoyed doing the most:

So we went to the Ashmolean Museum and I’ve been there before so I didn’t really find it interesting. Okay this isn’t really something I enjoyed doing the most. I don’t know why but I just don’t enjoy trips to museums. Anyway, the museum actually terrified me! And that’s because it had bridges/corridors higher up in the building and the sides of the bridge-sort-of-corridor were made of glass. Plus, it had gaps. Now, if you don’t know me I am terrified of heights. And when I saw the gaps and how high we were up in the building (to be honest it wasn’t even that high) I just froze. And I couldn’t make myself cross the bridge-sort-of-corridor which should be renamed the health-and-safety-hazard-corridor-for-people-who-are-scared-of-heights (that’s a mouthful.) So yeah, in the end I did go through the corridor thing because I had to get to the other part of the museum but I did it with my eyes closed, not gonna lie.

So after the museum we just went on a walk, trying to spot all the little universities/colleges. And then we went to a second-hand bookshop and I loved it. I bought a couple of books and that was pretty much it. I will show you some pictures because I can’t really think of anything else to talk about!

(the picture of the Ashomolean museum above isn’t mine by the way – I forgot to take one of it)

This photo is quite bad but the flowers behind the fence were really beautiful so I attempted to take a photo!

This was a lovely little cafe on Rose Place street! 🙂 I had a pain of chocolate  pain of chocolat and a hot chocolate. I think I was obsessed with hot chocolate at the time – especially as it was very cold (I mean the weather was cold not the hot chocolate)!

So there you go! I only had a few photos but I hope you enjoyed reading this post anyway! I haven’t really done these kind of chatty posts before so let me know in the comments if you liked it!

Lots of love,

Rosypop xxx
